What the heck is “Garage Fiction”?
Since January 2015, three writers (Nicholas Brack, Dogwood Daniels & Jinn Zhong) have committed to writing a flash fiction or scene each and every week based on a “creative prompt”. We post our work on Fridays at each of our respective websites and dissect them together on Mondays via podcast.
We also end up chatting about the craft of writing, the creative process,
storytelling and other related tangents.
This week’s Garage Fiction prompt was provided by Nicholas Brack…
“River Flows in You” – Composed and Performed by Yiruma
On This Episode: Cthulhu and the power of setting, how readers can ‘ride’ your characters through the story, and making your world strange and familiar (the Lovecraft formula revealed!)
Also: Jinn pulls his hair out trying to understand a Dogwood piece, Dogwood finds excuses to avoid criticism, and Nicholas discusses telling the stories you don’t want to tell.
